Marvel Comics will continue to honor the late Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman following his untimely passing.

The comic book giant is gearing up for the release of upcoming Marvel comic titles which will feature a tribute banner to honor the MCU's T'Challa. The special black header bears the character's emblem and it reads: "Rest in Power Chadwick Boseman, 1976-2020." Comic book website AIPT was able to obtain copies of the commemorative covers — with both first issues of Juggernaut and The Immortal She-Hulk getting the treatment. No official announcement has been made as to when they'll hit stores. You can check out the leaked photo here:

Previously, Marvel Studios released a moving video package to pay homage to the late actor. The touching tribute was posted across their official social media accounts. If you haven't seen it, you can watch it below:

With a lot of people still mourning his passing, I gotta commend Marvel Comics for pulling yet another classy move to keep Chadwick's legacy alive. Now, if they can somehow continue the 2018 comic book run of Black Panther with one more issue, that would be splendid.

We reported last night that Boseman was laid to rest in his home state of South Carolina, a week after his death. Chadwick was last seen in the Marvel Studios blockbuster Avengers: Endgame.
